Our nation must develop an “all of the above” approach to domestic energy production so that we can grow our economy, add jobs, and advance towards North American energy independence.

Health Care

We should be proud of the excellent care that doctors and nurses provide in Western Pennsylvania and throughout America. However, in order to address the rising cost of health care and the lack of access to health insurance coverage, we need health care reform.
GROWING THE ECONOMY

Jobs & Economy

President Obama’s economy is failing families, young people, seniors, workers, and future generations. Too many Western Pennsylvanians and other Americans are unemployed, underemployed, or have given up looking for work.

Medicare

Medicare is critically important for seniors by providing health care coverage. Congress must work to strengthen and secure Medicare so that it is there for future generations.

National Defense

Defense and National Security are important to our district and to my work in Congress. Learn more about my views on this issue.

Right to Life

The right to life is enshrined in our nation’s founding documents. One of the most important ways in which the federal government can uphold this right is by defending those who cannot defend themselves, including the unborn, the terminally ill, and the elderly.

Social Security

Social Security is an important source of financial support and economic security for seniors. While reforms are necessary to ensure Social Security’s sustainability, it is important that we hold the government accountable and make sure that it is able to honor the commitments it has made to our nation’s seniors.
PROMOTING FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY

Spending & Debt

The surging debt and persistent deficits run up by the federal government are a threat to our economy, national security, seniors, and veterans. Today, every American’s share of the national debt is roughly $53,000. That would pay for a family’s groceries for nearly seven years or a four-year degree at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.

Term Limits

Washington is broken. Citizen legislators with real world and private sector experience are needed now more than ever given the challenges we face. Term limits would ensure that our representatives and senators serve for a season and then return to life as private citizens.
